Product Details

TotalBoat Marine Wood Finish is a protective wood treatment for teak and other wood above the waterline. This flexible, breathable finish provides exceptional weather protection. It's easier to apply and maintain than traditional varnish, with no sanding between coats necessary.

Marine Wood Finish penetrates deeply into the wood pores to create a rich, warm finish, enhancing the natural beauty of your boat's wood. A unique linseed oil and resin formula contains advanced UV inhibitors for greater protection, durability and longevity. Keep your woodwork looking beautiful with the least amount of maintenance necessary.

Goes on like a paint - looks like a varnish

Available in Teak, Satin, and Gloss finishes. Teak is suited for teak and other dark hardwoods. Gloss may be applied over Teak and Satin, but can also be used as a base coat.

  • Sanding is not necessary between coats - if applied within 72 hours of each other.

Good product
By Total boat sunk on service from Massachusetts

Verified Purchase

I bought two quarts to apply to truck wood bed. Product went on good, pleased how it dried. It has a golden orangey look. I used one quart and called Jamestown to return the other and they said they will not except return because of hazmat issue and do not have a shipper to do it "but if I can find one". Asked if I can physically return it myself and they said no. Good product but service is questionable.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Stick with Varnish
By Ryan from PA

Verified Purchase

I bought this as an alterative to varnish for a cedar strip canoe I was redoing. The finish never completely dried and remained tacky for days. I eventually had to sand it off because after a week it was still tacky. I thought it was the humidity so I brought the project from the garage to the house. I tried again on the paddle and I had the same problem. Next time Ill stick to varnish.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

Withstands the Harsh Florida Environment
By kapiteinterzee from North Port, Florida

Verified Purchase

This is our second purchase of the TotalBoat Marine Wood Finish as we've had success with it on the brightwork of our backyard built 20' LOA, 8' Beam, Ply on Frame Pacific Northwest Dory. We started using it when we first mounted the White Oak Rubrails when the hull was on the strongback. We also used it on our White Oak Sole and the AshToerail. White Oak is a bear to finish and keep clean, but this material, after a year, has held up to the harsh Sun and Environment of the Sun Coast of Florida. We highly recommend it!

Great but very thick so needs thinning
By Don A from Chatham, MA

Verified Purchase

Great product but the first coat needs to be thinned to get a smooth finish on new teak. I used Naptha but the can recommends a Total Boat product. 3 coats and I think the new teak will last a long time.

New teak trim and old for comparison
